Antiques are old items that have appreciated in value, and are purchased by collectors who find them to be valuable. Many antiques are considered to be items that are so old that they come from a previous age in human history. Many antiques tend to be exceptionally rare, and many of them are known for being extremely expensive. To qualify as an antique, an object must show a certain level of craftsmanship in their design. Many antiques have qualities that make them much more valuable than contemporary items within the same industry. Antiques can frequently be found in establishments such as museums, where they will be showcased for historical purposes.
It is possible for virtually any item to be considered an antique if it lasts for a certain period of time. However, true antiques must be accepted by society as a whole.

An example of items that can depreciate in value before becoming antiques are automobiles. While mass produced automobiles will rapidly depreciate in value when they are used, exotic vehicles such as the Ferrari or Bentley will be valuable when it is sold, and it will rarely lose a lot of value.
